More on tulle ... tulle glorious tulle

The name of this gorgeous fabric originates from the French town of Tulle, pronounced tool, at some time in the 1700s. Knitting a fabric with hexagonal meshes, the French made this lightweight and delicate looking fabric.
Tulle is made from cotton, silk, rayon, nylon, wool, polyamide, polyester and lurex. Cotton and silk are my favourites.
